In a nice offering from Treetrunk Records, 2 experienced artists interpret the "Constant" theme. "Constant" began as an experiment in minimalism on Webbed Hand Records. A single textured drone by mystified, in longform, was released. The idea was to supply a signal that was very consistent, and approached constancy.
The response to this piece was impressive. Some explained that they could not stop listening to "Constant". A number of pieces by various artists were released on the TZP Drone Company ( http://www.archive.org/details/tzpdc ), exploring this theme, many quite successfully. "Constant 8", Tribe Of Astronauts, appeared in 2007 on Treetrunk Records. Now Treetrunk is proud to release "Constant 9" and "Constant 10", by artists mystified and C.P. McDill.

The 'Constant' project is a true stroke of genius by Treetrunk. This one again delivers the goods with beautiful longform soundscapes that (to my mind) are best enjoyed with headphones to discover all the hidden depths. Ace!
